Asif Bhatti attempted to climb Broad Peak this summer.
Could he gain his first 8000er?
It was attempted without added Oxygen or High Altitude Porters
We followed his journey here;
Asif has closed Broad Peak expedition and left for Ali Camp in the morning. He met Sajid Sadpara on the way.
Asif reached up to 7500m during summit push, however, difficult snow conditions and avalanche at V made it very dangerous to progress ahead so all climbers decided to come down.
“Thin Air Professor Asif Bhatti has reached Camp 3 at 7200m ASL on Broad Peak.”
“Its time !!!!
“Last cup of comfort before going for extremely cold breathing in thin air…. The plan is to go for Camp 3 and then to spend few hours in Ultra high altitude zone. Needs prays and wishes.”
“Asif Bhatti is back at basecamp after completing second rotation Alhamdulillah!!
– Camp 1 ( 5600 m)
– Camp 2 ( 6200 m)
– Deposit made for Camp 3 at 6700 m.
“In next rotation ( after Eid) Asif will In Sha Allah establish Camp 3 and will proceed further.
“He is fit, energetic and doing great Ma Sha Allah on his No Porter No O2 attempt.”
Camp 2 established at 6200 meters. Asif Bhatti carried more than 20 kg of luggage from C1 to C2.
He is fit, energetic and doing great Ma Sha Allah on his No Porter No O2 attempt.”
“Leaving for Camp 2.”
“Second Rotation !!
“Asif Bhatti just reached Camp 1 again. All fit and better performance than first rotation Ma Sha Allah !!
“Time for Hi Tea at some serious High Altitude … the real essence of hi tea!”
“Asif Bhatti is safely back at Broad Peak basecamp after first rotation to Camp 1. Weather is bad today so he will resume action once things settle down.”
“Asif Bhatti has reached Camp 1 on Broad Peak.
